Week beginning 20.03.17
In our English lessons this week we will continue with our unit of work on diary writing. The children will be analysing the structure and features of a diary. In our sentence level work will be focusing on complex sentences. The children will be learning how to construct a sentence with a main and subordinate clause and how to punctuate them using a comma.
In Maths we will be starting a geometry unit of work focusing on angles. The objectives for this unit are to;
· recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn;
· Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters & four a complete turn;
· Identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle
We will be carrying out lots of practical work with the children looking for examples of right angles around the school and constructing their own right angle triangles.
The above link is a fun game which we will be using in class later on in the week.
Each week this half term we will be focusing on one of the Priory values. So far we have looked at ‘Teamwork’, ‘Effective Communication’, ‘Trust’ and ‘Flexibility’. This week we will be exploring ‘Making a difference.’
On Friday the children are invited to wear something red in return for a £1 donation to Comic relief and we will be completing some fun activities in the classroom.
The children have reading books, Mathletics tasks and spellings to learn for a test on Friday.
Lots of the children are asking to get a drink of water at various points during the day, particularly after ‘Mile a Day.’ Please ensure that your child has a water bottle in school which can be kept in the classroom allowing easy access.
The Year 3 team.
